Hey I wonder if Hara is planning on running the TC6.2 yet? Hara on Associated would be awesome.

Well, I've raced against him with my own T4'14.

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


He's car 1, his usual colours.
His car got put down with a basic setup from some of the other team drivers (he's spending most of his time getting Xray's 1/12 up speed as he's fighting with Dave Spashett for the UK 1/12 championship)

That's what I'm saying. All the 6.2's I've seen so far have looked amazing.

"Factory" can cover wide range starting with free product directly from the manufacturer all the way up to a salary (which may or may not be enough to be a full-time job).

He works with PCB's, fault finding and replacing components.

I drove one of Olly's cars, unbelievable amount of steering. When I mentioned it to his dad his response was "that thing is nervous on the start line!".
He's extremely fast with the Xray.

Amazing when driven by Keven H at 5280 Raceway or amazing when seen at other places and under other drivers? Did Jefferies ever drive a TC6.2 before making the switch or were the prototypes only reserved for Hebert, Hohwart and Levanen?

Definitely Keven's car looked good at our place. But more specifically, I've seen videos of it in action at Horsham (Cuffs) and at TQ, and in both cases it looked spectacular.

Olly briefly drove an early prototype that ultimately shared little with what was eventually released. The production car is far superior now and we are still improving setups.
SIDE NOTE: Keven Hebert won 13.5 at the IIC with the early prototype.

Hebert obviously had the most testing time because he races/tests/practices non-stop. I probably had the second most time followed by Juho and Olly with equal time among them.

I haven't heard anything bad about it from privateers who have run it so far.

You won't hear anything bad..... The TC6.2 is a Beast. Plain and simple it's easy to drive consistent laps with and it's deceptively fast.

Keven's new car looked great when he raced with us, but a T4 and an Awesomatix both ran the same fast lap and qualifying time (40, 6:01) at Horsham last weekend in mod.

Probably he wil be at the same position of Hagberg, however xray its a huge team, what are their true factory drivers.... is not a secret that the data of the car when there are too many people racing is not quiet accurate.

Another driver??? That makes two,lol as for team drive, he gets all big race meetings paid for, travel, accommodation,plus the car and spares, Xray will only pay the base rate, he can upgrade travel and accommodation at his expense
